Stetson- 6 Stetson Handpainted Turquoise Leaf Berry Bowls 1940's
Here are 6 berry bowls from the Stetson Pottery Company. I don't know the name of the pattern but they feature beautiful handpainted brushwork... turquoise and black leaves with an almost Oriental feel to their simplicity. 5.25" x 1-3/8". The berry bowls are not marked but other larger items in the set are marked with green underglaze stamp: An ovenproof Stetson Creation hand painted underglaze copyright. We're offering more pieces from this set in our other auctions this week. There are some minor scratches in the bottom areas but they're basically in very good condition.
According to my old American Dinnerware book by Jo Cunningham, Joe Stetson's pottery produced only decal work until sometime in 1946 or 1947 when he brought in decorators from Red Wing and Southern Potteries (Blue Ridge) and began to produce only handpainted wares. This lasted for only 2 or 3 years and they went back to decorating with decals again. That would mean this set was produced sometime between 1946 and 1950, making it quite rare. 15s12
